    Atomic CLR - replace with Adam A7X/8X? (probably not)

    I’ve got 2 beautiful Atomic CLR MkII Neo that I play through at home. Love them! BUT, thing is I don’t play out at gigs much anymore, and lately I’ve pretty much always ended up going FOH with IEMs because of either limited space on stage or a sound guy who wants full control of the sound on the...

    Wish Add Preference/Option to default the 'Block Info' on/off when starting Axe Edit

    When opening Axe Edit, I always enable this feature because channels are such an integral component to Preset/Scene design. It would just make workflow that little bit easier if we could control whether we want this to default on or off on startup. It just feels strange (for me) to always...

    [Might be solved] Strange problem - Wah block seems to kill Output randomly

    I've been getting this odd behaviour for a long time now, but it has been random and very difficult for me to recreate/explain. The short summary is I'll be using the Wah block on any preset and after a couple of minutes of wah noodling suddenly my AxeFX output drops almost completely (you can...

    A good affordable, modern guitar for some fun!

    So I have mostly vintage guitars because they lend themselves perfectly to the type of sound I record/play live with. But I miss a good metal chunker that I can drop to C and do some of the Leon Todd/Inflames type of fun when I am in the mood for it. For this, my Gibson LP (59 reissue) just...

    Help getting this POG/Vibrato sound [Solved]

    I have been asked to get this sound nailed, but am not even close with my attempts so was wondering if anyone had managed to do something similar and could help me please? The video says he uses a POG with emphasis on the high octave, so I used a Pitch block (dual shift) and have set the Shift...

The panel I have is: RS Online Panel Can anyone advise what is...

    Adam Hall PCL 10 Power Conditioner - has anyone used this?

    I'm thinking about getting one of these for my rack to power my Axe-FX3 and GT22; I'm not really needing a power conditioner but I do need a central on/off control that will switch both units on/off from the front panel simultaneously. And the extending LED lights will be very useful too! So...

    PRS Silver Sky owners/players question

    I just got myself the Horizon, and I am very happy with it so far except for a couple of small niggles. I have just under 2 weeks to return it for a full refund, but wanted to get your opinions on your Silver Sky and if you are still happy with it! My initial thoughts are WOW this thing is...

    Saw Cory Wong in Bristol last night

    ...and he was brilliant! What a great show that was! His band was SUPER tight, brass backing and top musicians all around. Cory definitely knew how to work the crowd, and play his guitar of course! One of my favourite things about him is that he even replies directly to emails; we sent him an...

    Massive shout out to G66

    I think G66 need recognition for how good their customer service is! There is no better dealer that I have worked with when it comes to support, turnaround and consistency! Not to mention how friendly and understanding they are. One example of many is I had an issue with my MFC's power supply...

    [RESOLVED] MFC-101 Mk3 not working with Axe-Fx 3 - please help

    I'm trying to program my MFC101 (Mk3) to control my AxeFX3, but am having a really hard time with getting it to work. I'm not an expert in MIDI and have previously just used my AxeFX2 with FASLink, so that was very easy to configure. With the AxeFX3 however, I am using single direction MIDI (MFC...

    MIDI Cable for MFC-101 MkIII

    Hi guys! I'm very confused about which cable I should use to connect my MFC101 MkIII to my Axe FX3. I don't really need bi-directional comms between the Axe and MFC, I literally just want my MFC to be able to change presets/scenes/bypass blocks and don't really mind about the MFC display not...

    Fitting 2 x Atomic CLRs under a 93cm wide table?

    Quick question for any Atomic CLR MkII owners please! I'm probably going to get 2 of these and when at home I want to fit them under a 93cm wide table. Reading the specs online, they seem to be just a little over 45cm wide, however I cannot tell if this includes the feet or not. Can you guys...

    Axe FX XL (due for upgrade to AFX3) vs Wife (v1.0 - not due for an upgrade)

    Anyone else having that awkward conversation with their wife about buying a new Axe FX 3? Too late I realise my rookie mistake of telling her over the last 4 years how perfect my XL has been, only to now have to try convince her that whilst the XL was "perfect" there is still a definite need...

    Big Synth sound needed - by tomorrow night.... :o

    Our keyboardist has realised he cannot use Main Stage and therefor has pulled out with 1 day to spare before we play tomorrow evening, leaving us with a pretty large gap in one song that needs a lot of synth lead effects. I can pretty much get a lot of them on my Axe FX, but I never play with...

    Tagging the OP in threads

    Is there a way to set these forums so that the person who starts a thread is always tagged as the OP when they reply to their own thread? The reason I ask is because sometimes when a thread gets a large number of replies, it tends to loose focus on the OP's original point as it gets slightly...

    AxeFx -> AudioInterface -> MacBook Pro -> Bluetooth headphones

    Calling all Mac gurus for help please! Does anyone know if this is possible? I want to use my new wireless headphones when practicing at home with my AFX. Basically my setup is AxeFX -> Focusrite PRO24 -> MacBook Pro (using SPDIF). I can also just go AxeFx -> MacBook Pro (using USB). So I...

    [SOLVED] Strange behaviour - MFC preset name clears out and AFX screen blanks

    Hey guys and gals, hope you can help me with something here please! Not sure if this is just my unit, but I've twice now had to reboot my Axe-Fx during a live performance. What happens is really weird and I haven't quite figured out how to recreate it, what happens is I play a few songs and...

    FAS Crunch amp model - BLIMEY!!

    I've been using the AC30 and Morgan AC20 amp models for the last year or so now, and generally when I want a fat drive I have just pushed up the gain on these amps - all good. For some reason, I felt like I needed a redesign on some of my main presets and started messing with the FAS Crunch amp...

    Diago Showman - help with how to mount MFC101

    Hello everyone! I'm getting my Diago Showman pedalboard in a couple of days, however I have no idea how to mount my MFC101, Mission EP1, and Fractal EV1 pedals to it. The pedalboard comes with a flat base which I think is covered in velcro, however the MFC and other pedals all have rubber feet...

    Greedy for more external switches :)

    Hi guys (and gals if you are out there....). Is it possible to setup expression pedals 3 & 4 on my MFC101 (Mk3) as external switches? I am building a new pedal board for my MFC where I thought it would be cool to have an extra row of 6 switches at the bottom of the MFC. I've not been able to...

    Tone Matching my 12 string - is that a good idea?

    Hey all tone matchers! I've been asked to play my 12 string acoustic for a few songs next week, and have decided to break away from using the boring old DI box -> FOH so I'm going to use my Axe-Fx. :D There are lots of you out there who have tone matched your 6 string acoustics with really...

    I want to share with you guys some news about an amazing weekend that I just had. One of the fellow forum members here (London John) knows I am a big Bonamassa fan, and on Friday sent me a message saying that he would be happy to take me along with him to watch Joe playing at the Hammersmith...

    So I did something stupid today...

    After spending some lovely time with FW18, I went to practice on Thursday with an incredibly awesome sounding Plexi 100 preset as one of our songs needed a really nice fat distortion. I got so many compliments during and after practice, from band members - to sound guys - to general people in...

    What is that iconic Hendrix effect?

    H'lo all, I've been trying to work out what exactly which effect to use for that classical Hendrix tremolo type sound (see video below). I think it is some kind of rotary or univibe, but I'm not sure how to set them up for that. It's almost like a tremolo that decays nicely...

    Question on Looper

    Greetings! I've got my MFC101 looper working nicely (almost - hence the post) so that I can switch presets whilst using the looper which is perfect for what I want; however when I switch presets then the audio that is looping changes to the new preset as well. So if I was looping a clean...

    Luckiest guy in the world!

    Sob story alert! Don't read this if you are emotional. I need someone to pinch me! I don't have an Axe-Fx, it's been a bit too out of our price range and I've been struggling finding time to play with my Marshall without waking kids etc. So for the last 2 years I have been dreaming of getting...

    I wonder if there will be a more powerful Axe Fx...

    I was going to post this in the Wish list forum, but it isn't really a 'wish', more a ponderment (new word time folks). :encouragement: The new Reverb has impressed me so much that I think it's about time to get the XL. There is just one thing though, with all the expected experimenting that...
